The Rose Empire at Louvre Lens Museum

Nearly a century after the fall of Iran’s Qajar dynasty (which lasted from 1785 to 1925), and amidst the festivities of the two-week-long- Iranian New Year (Norooz), a landmark exhibition at the Louvre Lens Museum in France is showcasing masterpieces of Qajar art. The exhibition’s interior and displays are the work of the renowned French fashion designer – and Qajar art lover – Christian Lacroix. This exhibition runs until July 23, 2018.
